A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini car show, depending on who’s stopped by the store. Each Wednesday, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.

Everyone seems to be talking about 12-12-12 today, but we’re thinking about Tri-Fives instead.

We actually found this one earlier in the year outside the Summit Racing store, but the holidays make us feel nostalgic. The classic 1957 Chevrovet Bel-Air also makes us feel nostalgic for the gold ol’ days, so we’re making it this week’s parking lot find of the week. From the chrome hood rocket sculptures to the unmistakable rear fins, it’s a true American classic.

Plus, it would make a great last-minute holiday gift; wouldn’t you say?
